Missouri knows how!

Missouri knows how!

ALL the states should do this...

Missouri is way ahead...

Hope "they" don't boycott MO. Too!

SO WHY IS EVERYBODY SO UPSET ABOUT ARIZONA???

Simple solutions to a not so complex problem!

The "Show Me" state has once again shown us how it should be done.

They need more exposure on this.

Let's pass it around.

In 2007,

Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri.

Nearly 90% voted in favor!

English became the official language for ALL governmental proceeding in Missouri.

It also meant no individual had the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008

a measure was passed that required our Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform Federal authorities if the person was found to be here illegally.

It allowed Missouri law enforcement offices to receive training to Enforce federal immigration laws.

The bill made it clear that illegal immigrants would NOT have access to taxpayers benefits such as food

Stamps and health care through Missouri HealthNET.

In 2009

a measure was passed that ensured Missouri's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are here illegally.

The law also required all post-secondary institutions of higher education to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. Of Higher Education that they had NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who were unlawfully present in the United States.

So while Arizona has made national news for its new law,

it is important to remember Missouri has been proactive in addressing this growing problem.

Missouri has sent a clear message that illegal immigrants are NOT welcome in our state and they are certainly NOT welcome to receive public benefits at the cost of Missouri Taxpayers!

Good laws

It would be great if every state would pass such laws. NY, CA, MA and others won't, of course. It would be even better if the US Congress would pass such a law, and if we had a President that would sign it.
